Travelling Australia's Outback

Stock Photography By Heather Farish

Australia – the Outback, the Red Centre, the Never Never, beyond the Black Stump – descriptions of a remote, wild country outside the big cities such as Melbourne and Sydney. A journey from Darwin to Adelaide gives travellers the opportunity to experience Australia’s heart first hand, where the spinifex dotted red earth dominates. Here are some photographs of some of the highlights along the way.

Image Details for Travelling Australia's Outback

1. Ewinga reflections. Ewinga is a region between Alice Springs and Chambers Pillar to the south. Driving by as storm clouds scuttled overhead produced these striking reflections in a pool at Ewinga.

2. Mataranka Falls. South of Darwin, on the way to Alice Springs is the small town of Mataranka. Along the banks of the Roper River, Elsey National Park is located in which the small but pretty Mataranka Falls are found.

3. Ayers Rock. Ayers Rock is one of the most well-known natural attractions in Australia. On a flat plain, this huge monolith has even more underground. As the sun slowly sets, the rock gradually changes colour, making it an ideal subject and time for photographers to visit.

4. Chambers Pillar. Chambers Pillar is a bizarre sandstone rock formation found in central Australia, about 160 kilometres south of Alice Springs. The drive to reach it provides a fascinating insight into the desert of this region.

5. Galah. The galah is one of the many colourful birds seen in Australia, with many of them being seen in outback Australia including the Red Centre.

6. Devils Marbles. South of Darwin, on the way to Alice Springs is a strange conglomeration of rocks called the Devils Marbles. Like the large rock further south, the ideal time to view them is at sunrise or sunset as they glow in shades of orange, yellow and brown.

8. Rainbow Valley. Rainbow Valley Conservation Park is approximately 100 kilometres south of Alice Springs, with the last 22 km along a dirt road. The sandstone cliffs and bluffs are at their best just before sunset.The different coloured layers are due to the minerals present in the rocks.
